Template:Columns-list/doc

From LIMSWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


This template is for use in a list in the body of an article, rather than in a navigation template like Template:Navbox. Based on Template:Reflist, but different in that the text to be displayed is manually created rather than a list of references.

Use

{{columns-list|number of columns|
Text (usually a list)
}}

Alternatively, the width of each column may be specified using

{{columns-list|colwidth=width|
Text (usually a list)
}}

Here, width specifies the width of the columns, and determines dynamically the number of columns based on screen width; more columns will be shown on wider displays. This overrides the cols= setting.

This template uses CSS3 multiple column layout and is not supported by all Web browsers.
